Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9841966A1] This invention relates to the application of premiums positioned on consumer packaging to provide value to the advertising label stock. The premiums (36) preferably are integral with the labeling material (34) such that the label (34) has an essentially uniform thickness that does not create a problem for automated application of the label stock to the consumer product.
